Picture Worth 1000 Words and a $100 Check

❝ On Tuesday, a group of senators traveled to the White House to have lunch with President Donald Trump. In a classic Trumpian power move, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, who has been one of the most outspoken Republican critics of Trump, was seated directly next to the President.

Which brings us to this amazing photo — snapped by AFP’s Saul Loeb…

❝ Trump, in the foreground, is out of focus but it’s clear he is talking. When Trump did talk before lunch with the senators on Tuesday, he defended his decision to endorse controversial Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore of Alabama.

Hours later, Flake cut a $100 check to Moore’s Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Rare, but, telling, example of a politician choosing to endorse civil decency over regressive, opportunist cowardice.
